Introducing the Announcements Thread!

by Latoya Peterson

After much discussion, Carmen and I have decided to start an announcements thread that will run every Friday.

The thread will serve two purposes:

If you are a promoter/publicist/event coordinator, please send us information about your event (preferably with an event flyer) to before noon on Thursdays. Please include “Announcements Thread – ____” in the subject line.

If you are a reader and would like to highlight specific blog posts you have written or events that you are attending, please feel free to leave a message in the comments section.

Please note: Racialicious reserves the right to refuse any promotions/delete any comments that we deem are not a good fit for this site or for our audience.

And now…





The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival will be held at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles, June 12-June 14, 2008, celebrating storytelling of the Mixed racial and cultural experience including that of transracial/cultural adoption and interracial/cultural relationships.

The Festival, hosted by Mixed Chicks Chat, is an inclusive event targeting the growing population of multiracial and multicultural individuals. The Festival brings together film and book lovers, innovative artists, and families interested in the Mixed racial and cultural experience.

For more information, visit The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival 2008 site.
